Hello friends. It’s Sunday.
This weekend I’m sharing some thoughtful articles on unlearning and useful tools I have found.
We’ve been conditioned in schools to think in certain ways growing up. But is what we’re taught still relevant or useful? The worls has been change since Covid hit most. People changed. Consumer behaviors changed. It’s time to unlearn some limiting beliefs and unlock access to fountaons of ideas and growth.
The world keeps evolving and we can’t meaningfully impact change if we’re calcified in our ways. It’s never too late to start.
Thankfully, this is my main purpose of this newsletter.
As usual, thanks for reading and joining me on this journey. Do hit reply to share what you liked, and what you didn’t.
Interesting reads on Unlearning
Ana shares about the things we learned in school that we need to unlearn, then relearn.
Unlearn: Fear mistakes.
Relearn: Get comfortable with making mistakes and learn from them.
Another good piece on unlearning. We’ve been taught that 1) competition is healthy; 2) winning requires outdoing the competition. But that’s misguided. “The most rewarding path is not head-on competition with everyone else. Instead, it’s finding our own version of the sling and stone.” Davids can beat Goliaths if they play smart, fast and redefine rules.
Actionable advice on unlearning. Be open. Chase the unfamiliar. Foster curiosity.
Have you ever felt unsatisfied by some decisions you’ve made? It might be due to failing to consider the intersection between these three things:
What makes you happy
What’s smart — meaning long-term good for you
What’s useful to others
